Coronavirus Deaths as Percent of Population Tracker, By Country

This table tracks coronavirus deaths as a percent of the population for each country.

(This is a ratio of coronavirus deaths to the total population for each country, then multiplied by 100 to convert to percentage.)

Countries are listed in order by those with the highest percentage of the population that died of coronavirus COVID-19.

(To see the rate of increase for global COVID-19 deaths, see this, or rate of increase for global COVID-19 cases, see this. Or see what percent of the population has been confirmed with coronavirus, or more coronavirus statistics here.)

Below the bar chart, you will find the table of numbers in case you prefer to see the actual data. Jump down there. Or jump down to see the source of this data.

      And that is the real question.
      I don’t think anyone has ever thought of me as a conspiracy theorist, but one can’t help but wonder about Covid19.

      So less than 1 percent of people ( way less ) have had the virus and over a million have died so far. If its allowed to go fee without any restrictions .. many millions will die. Work it out for yourself. Work out the capacity of the healthcare system in each country .. how long would they last if if was allowed to spread?

        Over a million…all the cv stats are padded. This is a corona virus, they’ve been around for a long time. It should just go through the population, just as all viruses do.

        avatar
      • December 23rd, 2020 at 1:05 pm

        CDC shows total deaths from all causes is the same as previous years. Funny thing: individual categories – heart disease, cancer, diabetes, etc -have all gone down. The analysis from a Johns Hopkins report concluded that those were mislabeled as cv.

        avatar
        • December 28th, 2020 at 5:51 pm

          I’m sorry, Maureen, but that’s simply wrong.

          The CDC estimates that the number of excess deaths in the US from Feb. 1, 2020 to Dec. 12, 2020 is between 308,617 and 420,085. You can read all about the methodology they use to calculate excess mortality here:

          https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vsrr/covid19/excess_deaths.htm
          

          (The lower number is calculated on the basis of a 95% confidence interval, whereas the higher number is the difference between the number of deaths reported from all causes since Feb. 1, 2020 and the average expected number of deaths from all causes since 2013. You can play around with the CDC’s dashboards at the URL above if you’re interested in more fine-grained results. You can discover, e.g., that Florida had between 18,105 and 27,040 excess deaths from Feb. 1 to Dec. 12.)

          The New York Times also does excess mortality estimates:

          https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/us/covid-death-toll-us.html
          

          as does The Economist:

          https://www.economist.com/graphic-detail/2020/07/15/tracking-covid-19-excess-deaths-across-countries
          

          In short, there’s plenty of high quality information about excess mortality available for those willing to take the time to look for and evaluate it.

          If you don’t have time, I’ll give you a short synopsis: Anyone who thinks that SARS-CoV-2 is “just another virus” is willfully ignoring the facts.

            Thanks Bob. Solid information is important; I have no doubt this is a far more dangerous and too-often deadly virus than other existing viruses. Anyway, masking, distancing and hand-washing still makes sense to me.

          • January 8th, 2021 at 6:20 pm

            Bob,

            Spot on for making that comment as not accurate. I tried to use your csc link but it brought me to an error page on their website… probably something on my end.

            I have compiled the total deaths and population size from 2010 to 2019 with information from wonder.cdc.gov . I then use this to get a death percent per the population for each year (all deaths no matter the cause). In doing this the 10 year average death as a percent of the population is .838 percent ( less than a fraction of 1% of the population dies each year). The 10 year high is .8711 percent.

            With the numbers we have for 2020 the percent of the population that died is .8894 percent. This is only .0137 percent more than the average or roughly 40,000 more people have died this past year than the 10 year average. If you use the 10 year high only about 900 more deaths occured this past year than the worst year in the last ten!

            I hope this helps!

            Knowledge is the light

            You are correct, it is not “another virus”…it hasn’t been isolated and identified yet. Every single FOI request has been answered thusly: I’m sorry, we cannot furnish you this information, as we have no data on this…or something close to those words. Yes, indeedy, a pandemic for which the culprit has not been identified. Imagine a pandemic so scary and deadly that you have to be constantly fed fear porn from the msm and the government…so deadly you can’t see it for yourself…so deadly the cdc states that under 70 yrs you have something like a 99.9% chance of survival, IF you even get it. Yes, we’ve had some excess deaths over last year…last year had excess deaths over the year before…other years had fewer, some had more. Funny that the other categories of deaths (heart disease, cancer, obesity, diabetes, flu, etc) have gone way down, to be replaced by covid. Funny also that the way death certs are filled out has changed in 2020, along with the definition of a pandemic. 2020 has been the year of magical thinking.

            The CDC is not a government run entity. It’s a business!! The words are always Covid “related”…Too much power is given to the CDC. The CDC also says my husband does not have Lyme disease anymore. It’s all in his head ~ a psychological issue! Really? Look deeper into “follow the dollar”.

            Exactly what part are people falling for? The death rate for COVID vs the flu is about 50 times greater. The total number of cases is suppressed because of the precautions that virtually every country has taken. I don’t really understand the conspiracy point of view.

            Ron: all of it. The numbers are padded, the pcr test should not be used for diagnosing patients (look up Dr. Kary Mullis, the inventor, who stated unequivocally that it was never to used that way), it is causing a high % of false positives, we’ve never tested for flu or any other illness like this before, never quarantined the healthy, the “experts” have been repeatedly caught talking out of both sides of their mouths and moving goal posts (remember 2 wks to flatten the curve?), the massive damage from the shutdown has caused vastly more destruction and death than this or any virus…none of this so far has passed the sniff test. Not sure where you’re getting the “50 times greater” death rate. Italy, for ex, has been going through their cv deaths and removing many of them, finding that they actually died of their co morbidities/age. The conspiracy is about control.

            Oh the guy that was using LSD. And said that global warming was all a conspiracy. Every country in the world must be in on this conspiracy. The 50 to 100 times greater is from a paper by 2 epidemiologists. It’s unnecessary to cite because you most likely would not believe it.
            Ok. Thank you. I have not had a conversation with a conspiracy theorist before and now I have.

            Ron: so what? You are attacking and dismissing someone because they used lsd? There is actual medical usage for lsd. The idea of global warming has numerous detractors, it could very well be a conspiracy (yeah, governments do that kind of thing all the time, pay attention). The pcr is resulting in a high number of false positives, that is indisputable. Gosh, that tired trope “conspiracy therorist”…yawn. When ya got nothing, attack and dismiss.

    Appreciate you putting in the time to compile these numbers. Still curious about errors due to how deaths are or are not contributed to COVID.

    You are a numbers person too.
    – Right, only about 0.07% have died from COVIS.
    – Average US life expectancy is about 79
    – About 75% of deaths are over age 65 (see CDC site https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vsrr/covid_weekly/index.htm
    – Contributing factors are some amount, seems like little info on PURE COVID deaths
    – FYI, about 1,600,000 people (babies) die annually from ABORTION, which means it is 4 to 5 times as fatal as COVIS. It is also an ELECTIVE DEATH in most cases

      I agree with you 100%. Cleanliness, air filters on planes, caution and consideration for others, stay home.if you are sick; these should of been done a long time ago. Taking away our civil liberties over a virus, where precautions can be taken, is wrong. If we keep quiet too long, we will end up wishing we had done something sooner.

    My question is what are the credentials of isabelcastillo.com? I will try to “google”, and I don’t dismiss such info out of hand. But, is there a “track-record” for this data source? Any major endorsements? Judging “integrity” is hard, but again, I don’t dismiss this, but hope to find our who and what is behind this. Thanks.

    Dear Isabel,

    Thank you VERY much for analyzing the data this way. I have been telling people to look at the % of deaths per population, since it is more meaningful than “number of deaths per day” -and the like.
    I noticed you were taking the data from Johns Hopkins, because I was using them to do the math to get YOUR information; therefore, if those sites are “reputable”, so is yours!
    Thank you again for taking the time to make it easier to see for those who are paying attention.
